Vision loss can affect people of all ages – and can change life dramatically. Often, it has a significant effect on everyday life, and patients experience continuous mental stress due to worries, anxiety, or fear of consequences such as depression or social isolation. Retinitis pigmentosa (RP) is a progressive degenerative disease of the retina that can lead to blindness. Now, Okuvision GmbH from Reutlingen is giving hope to patients suffering from RP. The company has developed OkuStimⓇ, a system that offers the chance to slow down the progression of RP.
